Miss Julia Barry
Miss Julia Barry, 27, was born in Killeentierna, Kerry, Ireland the daughter of Michael Barry and his wife Julia.
Julia the younger had emigrated to the United States with her siblings and lived at 14 West 32nd Street, New York City.
She had been visiting relatives in her native Farranfore, Co Kerry. Her mother was dying so she had come home to nurse her.
Some days before she set off she went on a boat trip on the lakes of Killarney. She lost her parasol over the side and the boatman took this as an bad omen.
She would travel home with a party that included: Elizabeth Bradley, Katherine Butler, Mary Bresnahan, of Ireland, and Edward O’Brien.
She boarded the Titanic at Queenstown as a third class passenger (ticket number 330844, £7 17s 7d). According to a newspaper report she had planned to travel on the Celtic but had changed her travel plans in order to be aboard the Titanic on its maiden voyage. She wrote a letter to her brother, Edward in Yonkers, telling him to meet her at the pier. Instead, he met the Carpathia in the hope that she might have been saved.
Julia Barry lost her life in the disaster. Her body, if recovered, was never identified.
